Understanding Regression analysis

 Linear regression analysis means“ fitting a straight line to data” , also called
Linear Modelling

 It’s a widely used technique to help model data and understand real-world
phenomena
a) Easy to Use (Build)
b) Easy to interpret

 Allows prediction
Definition

##  A regression problem is composed of

• an outcome or response variable Y
• a number of risk factors or predictor variables Xi that affect Y ,
also called explanatory variables or features

## Y is sometimes called the dependent variable and Xi the

independent variables

For instance:
1. Yield depends on like Rainfall, Fertilizers, Soil fertility etc
2. IQ of a student on School, Teachers, Environment etc

Univariate linear regression
(when all you have is a single predictor variable)

Linear regression analysis

## Makes strong assumptions

between the predictor
variables (Xi ) and the
response (Y )
Linear regression:
one of the simplest a linear relationship, a
and most commonly straight line when
plotted
used statistical
modeling techniques only valid for
continuous outcome
variables (not
applicable to category
outcomes
Linear regression analysis

##  Our task: estimate 𝛽0 and 𝛽1 based on the available data

 Resulting model is ŷ = 𝛽0 ̂ + 𝛽1 ̂* x
 the “hats” on the variables represent the fact that they are estimated from the available data
 ŷ is read as “the estimator for y”

coefficients

##  Objective: minimize the error, the difference between

our observations and the predictions made by our.
linear model
 Minimize the length of the red lines in the figure to the right.
(called the “residuals”)

## British Doctors’ Study followed the health of a large number

of physicians in the UK over the period 1951–2001
Provided conclusive evidence of linkage between smoking
and lung cancer, myocardial infarction, respiratory disease
and other illnesses
Provides data on annual mortality for a variety of diseases at
four levels of cigarette smoking:
1. never smoked
2. 1-14 per day
3. 15-24 per day
4. 25perday

report claiming that cigarette smoking
causes lung cancer, based mostly on
correlation data similar to the previous slide.

## However, correlation is not sufficient to

demonstrate causality. ere might be some
hidden genetic factor that causes both lung
cancer and desire for nicotine.

Q: What is the expected lung cancer mortality risk for a group of people who smoke 15
cigarettes per day?

Multiple linear regression
(when all you have is a multiple predictor variables)
Understanding Multiple linear
regression

## Multivariate linear regression involves more than one predictor variables

For Instance, Yield of a crop not just depends on quality of soil
Multiple linear regression- Model

##  Equation for multivariate linear regression:

ŷ = 𝛽0 +𝛽1x1 +𝛽2x2 +...+𝛽nxn

##  The outcome variable is assumed to be a linear combination of the predictor

variables (the inputs)
Case Study
Multiple linear regression- Data
description

 Data set contains 9568 data points collected from a combined cycle power plant over 6
years, when power plant was under full load
 A combined cycle power plant is composed of gas turbines, steam turbines and heat
recovery steam generators
 Electricity is generated by gas & steam turbines, which are combined in one cycle
 Three ambient variables affect performance of the gas turbine
 Exhaust vacuum affects performance of the steam turbine
 Data consists of hourly averages taken from various sensors located around the plant that
record the ambient variables every second
 Let’s load it into Python and examine it using the pandas library

##  Objective: predict energy output at a Combined Cycle Power Plant

 Data available: hourly averages of variables

##  Let’s try to build a multivariate linear model to predict PE given

inputs AT, AP, RH and V
